Abstract

Introduction Linear accelerators (Linacs) with Flatness Filter Free (FFF) mode obtain a much higher dose rate by omitting the flatness filter. The resulting inhomogeneous dose distribution is compensated by fluence modulating techniques like IMRT or VMAT. This planning study compares VMAT plans for patients with prostate carcinoma. Optimizations were performed using both modes: flattened beam ...
